belexesNew Byers Peak Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2013

belexes

My original plan was to hike Greenhorn Mountain south of Pueblo, but I decided to stay closer to Denver. I started around 7AM, reached the summit around 9:30, got back down around 11:30. I didn't see anyone on the way up, until I got near the summit and a trail runner passed me. There were more hikers on the way down. The weather was sunny and beautiful, but with the breeze, we're starting to move into the cooler months. I wanted to go over to Bottle directly from Byers, but I could not find the trail in the trees, and besides, the clouds were already starting to build up. There will be another time.

Great time. Not many people, just a couple of mountain goats. The tundra was starting to change for autumn. Beautiful hike.

Took the Kinney Creek trail to St Louis Divide trail, up Bills, then out and back to Byers and another out and back to PT 12686 A. A windy day, seemed the wind was always in my face no matter which direction I was going, but luckily the temps were good. Great views in this area of the Gore and IPW!

Beautiful hike, views, and weather! I love this peak-it is a great reconditioner for my post-partum regime! A family of mountain goats greeted us at the summit!

We were the only ones on the mountain as we approached the summit. I was 1st to the summit by 45 minutes. As I approached a mountain goat was standing guard at the summit stick. Very cool experience.

I really liked this climb. Short and steep with some fun scrambling on the summit ridge. The weather was excellent and the view was fantastic!

Besides the two guys at the trailhead I had the mountain to myself. There was a lot of snow up there yet and I'm pretty sure that was the biggest cornice I've personally been around. Impressive. I'll have to upload a pic.

Great mountain I used to live near and climb all the time, the first when I was 7. Nice little afternoon trip. Perfect view from the summit. Usually never saw anyone up in there on our traverses of the Vasquez during the weekdays. Favorite place in Colorado, by far.

We spotted a couple of mountain goats and barely made it back to the car with enough light to see our feet. A wonderful after work climb!

I found this to be a great hike with a wonderful view of RMNP. The directions to the trailhead as posted on this site are misleading. Follow the sins in the forest, and you should be fine. The trailhead now starts about 1 mile down the road from the actual trailhead (you must follow a closed portion of the road up about a mile and 500 vertical feet). Storms rolled in around 1:30 PM.

One of the first few mountains I summited...and very dear to my heart since I looked at it practically every day when I lived in my first mountain environment, the Fraser Valley.

Camped at timeberline and hiked to the suumit by 7 am. A glorius early morning ascent. Snow was still prevalent on the peaks and I enjoed a magnificent view of the Gores to the west and the Indian Peaks to the east. Byers is a prominent summit with a mighty view. My dog Sopris was along for the summit ride on this mountain.

My wife and 15 month old Kessler waited above timberline, just below the summit while I went to the top.

Left trailhead at 5:35am going solo to peak. On top by 6:45am which surprised me. The trailhead sign warned of three "false summits." I never could figure out which humps were these alleged false summits because it was always obvious that there was more mountain to climb just over each hump. I was surprised to be on top so quickly. All my marathon training (even though at low elevation) paid off.



Great sunrise on the way up the trail. Only stayed 15 minutes due to windy conditions. Ran back down the trail. Back at the car by 7:35am. Great two-hour hike.
